Touch

A spotlight following her
As those tiny hands
Move towards the music
In the darkness

Closed eyes 
Open mouth
Eating the sunlight 
Guided by warmth

Count the steps
One, two.. eight
Tracing the pasty walls
She finds her way

Rhymes are rhymed 
Tales are spun
The day is almost over
But she isn’t having fun

Her head hangs loose
She didn’t distract herself
Enough
She remembers it, again today

She remembers it every second
It’s how she sees the world
Not with her eyes, no
Not even with her fingers

She poses for a photograph 
And cracks a broad smile
Happiness is her choice 
And she is home

A spotlight is following her
As those tiny feet
Tap towards the music
In her heart
